IBS, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, affects your digestive system and is a common condition with many sufferers throughout the UK.
Symptoms of IBS include bloating, stomach cramps, diarrhoea, and constipation. The symptoms can last a few days or even weeks at a time. Some patients are unfortunate to suffer the symptoms of IBS for even a few months.
Unfortunately, IBS tends to be a lifelong condition with no known, definite cure. Sufferers can make changes to diet and lifestyle and steer away from triggers that bring on a bout of IBS.
With good guidance from your doctors, keeping a balanced diet and making changes to your lifestyle, you can live with IBS. Many people suffer with IBS because of a missed diagnosis or a misdiagnosis of another condition, such as a food intolerance.
If you suffer the medical negligence of poor treatment of your IBS condition, you may have an IBS negligence claim.
